Tinder, currently the world's biggest biggest dating app for people to find matches and connect with them, is expanding another feature today to extend the time people spend in the app, and the communications they can have within it. Face to Face, an opt-in-only feature that Tinder launched earlier this year that lets users video chat with each other without exchanging personal information and only when they're facing the cam, is now expanding globally, perhaps a timely move in a moment when many people are not meeting in person. Tinder is well aware of the creepy aspects of dating services, and so tellingly it has touted how it's not the company's video team but its Trust and Safety team that built this one.Flippy robots will cook sliders in 10 more White Castle locations

Once again kicking off our earnings season coverage for the tech industry is Intel, who reported their Q3 2020 financial results this afternoon. The traditional leader of the pack in more than one way, Intel has been under more intense scrutiny as of late, particularly due to their previously disclosed delay in their 7nm manufacturing schedule. None the less, Intel has been posting record revenues and profits in recent quarters – even with a global pandemic going on – which has been keeping Intel in good shape. It’s only now, with Q3 behind them, that Intel is starting to feel the pinch of market shifts and technical debt – and even then the company is still well into the black.
For the third quarter of 2020, Intel reported $18.3B in re...Best Android Phones: October 2020
It’s the autumn months and we’re only a week away from Halloween. At this stage every single smartphone vendor has released all of their smartphone devices for 2020, and if it hasn’t become available yet then the new devices will see availability in the next couple of days and weeks.
Apple has showcased their new iPhone devices, Samsung had already released their relevant device line-up for the year, and Google’s new Pixel devices are becoming available soon.
This late on in the cycle we’re not expecting any more significant price drops until next year, although there can still be had some nice offers for this year’s earlier released phones.Huawei Announces Mate 40 Series: Powered by 15.3bn Transistors 5nm Kirin 9000

Bus-powered portable flash-based storage solutions are one of the growing segments in the consumer-focused direct-attached storage market. The emergence of 3D NAND with TLC and QLC has brought down the cost of such drives. NAND manufacturers like Western Digital, Samsung, and Crucial/Micron who also market portable SSDs have an inherent advantage in terms of vertical integration. Last year, Crucial/Micron had announced its entry into the segment with the QLC-based Crucial Portable SSD X8. A few months back, Crucial updated the lineup with a 2TB model while adding a lower-performance X6 member to the portfolio. Read on for our review of how these two high-capacity models fare in our evaluation.

Xiaomi Redmi K30S is official with SD865, 144 Hz screen
Xiaomi executives have been teasing the Redmi K30S, and now the phone is finally official. It comes with a 64 MP main camera, Snapdragon 865 chipset by Qualcomm, and up to 144 Hz refresh rate for the 6.67” screen; if all these specs look familiar, it is because you’re looking at a rebranded Mi 10T for markets where Redmi has strong brand recognition. The main difference between the Redmi K30S and Mi 10T is the memory combinations - here, we have 8 GB RAM, coupled with either 128 GB or 256 GB storage. The phone lacks a memory card slot, so that’s all the internal memory...All hopes of Apple’s AirPower charging mat are lost, yet again
If you haven’t heard of the AirPower charging mat, it was a product that Apple announced in 2017 along with the drastically redesigned iPhone X which would let you wirelessly charge AirPods, an Apple Watch, and the iPhone, wherever you placed them on the mat. Apple eventually announced it was abandoning the project, reportedly due to complications with overlapping charger coils overheating. Apple shows off the AirPower charger during its September 2017 keynote Some time passed after the initial cancellation and new reports from reliable Apple leaker @JonProsser claimed that the...Forget about the Nord, grab a OnePlus 7T for $399 instead
The original OnePlus Nord was the company's return to the mid-range, but that phone hasn't been and won't be sold in the US. The just unveiled Nord N10 will take its place in North America, but it's still unclear when and for what price. So, if you want a OnePlus phone that's cheaper than the 8T and 8 Pro, and you don't care about 5G, here's something for you. B&H is currently holding a very limited time sale on the OnePlus 7T from last year, bringing its price down to just $399. That's probably what the Nord would've been sold for had it been launched in the US. The OnePlus 7T has...Doogee S96 Pro rugged smartphone launches with infrared night vision

Some interesting details about the upcoming AirPods and AirPods Pro successors emerged giving us a good idea of how the development is going and what they will look like.

According to Bloomberg, Apple is going with a more AirPods Pro-like look for the standard AirPods next year with changeable tips. However noise-cancellation won't be tricking down with the upgrade instead bringing, a considerable improvement in battery...vivo to replace Funtouch OS with Origin OS
Late last year vivo announced Funtouch OS 10, which launched with the X30 phone, but the pandemic delayed plans to update older phones. Originally, the company was planning a switch to Jovi OS before abandoning the project. Well, now vivo has a new in-house software project and it’s called Origin OS. Apparently, that stands for “original OS” and leakster Digital Chat Station claims that it will be a major improvement over the current Funtouch. It sounds like it will be a near complete re-write too. According to DCS, Origin OS will become one of the best Android UI customizations out...Facebook Gaming is a game streaming service focused on free-to-play mobile games only
Facebook is launching its own cloud gaming service, but it’s not going to compete with the Nvidia, Microsoft and Google services. The social network is focusing on mobile games exclusively while the others are for PC games. This new service offers instantly-playable games, just pick a game and tap on it – currently available titles can be found at fb.gg/play. No installation is needed and no controllers either (since mobile games are designed to be played on a touchscreen). Another major difference is that Facebook’s cloud gaming service is launching with free-to-play games....Apple iPhone 12 in for review
A new iPhone must be viewed through the lens of your current handset – how you see the iPhone 12 is quite different if you’re holding, say, an 11 Pro compared to how you see it compared to something like the XR or even older. And if you have an Android, Apple’s phones may be a preview of what’s to come in 2021. The new vanilla model represents a fairly major upgrade over its predecessors, the iPhone 11 and XR. The first thing you’ll see is the OLED display – it’s the same size (6.1”), but is sharper, supports HDR10 and has that excellent contrast native to OLED panels. There’s also...
